Abstract

Abstract

Starch granules from stems of mature corn (Zea mays L.) and sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L. Moench) plants were about a third as large as average granules from endosperm tissue of the same species and contained only 1/3 to 1/2 as much amylose. The stem starches had lower gelatinization temperatures and gave C X-ray diagrams instead of the A diagram typical of normal cereal endosperm starches.
